Web Publishing Training Sessions

WordPress Training Sessions

Training sessions are available by request to departments and groups who use WordPress as part of the CAEN Web Publishing Service. These sessions provide an introduction to CAEN’s WordPress environment, and go over many key features covered in the CAEN Knowledge Base. To request a training session, send a request to caen@umich.edu, and we will work with your group to schedule a date and location.


WordPress Walk-In Sessions

CAEN periodically holds walk-in sessions (upcoming dates listed below) for users of the CAEN Web Publishing Service to stop by and ask questions. Visitors will have the opportunity to make updates to their websites at computers in the room, and request immediate assistance as required. If you have edits to make to your site and just aren’t sure how to get started, we will step through the editing process with you. No registration is required to attend.

All of the sessions for Spring/Summer 2017 will be held in the Duderstadt Center Advanced Training Lab 1 on the third floor:

  • Thursday, May 25, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, June 22, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, July 20, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, August 10, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.

Future walk-in sessions will be scheduled for the Fall 2017 term, and posted to this page.
